Personal Project Introduction
On Friday our Grade 9 students were introduced to the Personal Project through a morning of workshops. They completed a range of individual and group activities that focused on each Personal Project objective and reflected on the Global Context and possible topics they would like to explore. We encourage all Grade 9 students to complete their Personal Project on a topic they are passionate about, and to not only enhance existing skills but to learn new ones too.
Pre-IBDP at ISS
Our grade 10 students have now completed their eAssessments and will be back in school on Thursday to begin a two week introductory unit in the IBDP subjects they have selected for grade 11. The purpose is that over the two weeks students will be provided with:
- a detailed, subject-specific overview of the courses that they will take in Grade 11 & 12, including learning expectations in terms of prior knowledge, learning skills, subject-specific content, homework and independent study.
- an introduction to subject-specific command terms and terminology through relevant examples.
- a detailed list of tasks (which may include reading subject-related articles, books, accessing websites, watching TED talks etc.) that will provide them with a ‘grounding’ in that particular course.
We are confident that this provides our students with a foundation that will support their transition into our DP programme, ensuring they are informed and familiar with the subjects they have chosen to pursue. Information will be sent to students and parents via ManageBac about our Pre-IBDP programme. If you have any questions, please contact Mr Jungo, our IB coordinator, email@example.com
